Thread: Chris Rigg

  1. #1

    Chris Rigg

    Man U, Leverkusen and Dortmund all interested in him..

    Surely we will make a play for him, local lad who supports us.. His dad has had meetings with members of our board last season (I work with his uncle)

    Be daft if we didn't even try.. it has Michael Carrick written all over it

    Would be nice, but the middle is probably an area we have the most strength in depth at the minute when everyone is fit and not banned.

    If we’d had Tonali all season in think would have made a massive difference to a lot of results this season, with Miley and Anderson making great progress this season I think having Bruno, Big Joe, Tonali, Miley, Anderson, Willock should be enough (yes, I am putting Longstaff is the ‘for sale’ players)… assuming we can sort Willock’s fitness out and have him available more.

    I just reckon a 3rd striker (keeping Wilson) and a RW, if we get Tosin, then a new second choice keeper, might be the priority.

    All just my opinion mind :-)

    Correct about the midfield.. I've been saying this a while that we are stacked (keeping Bruno that is)..

    I do think Rigg is onto bigger and better things than Sunderland though and good luck to him with him being a fellow mag..

    I think we need a new first choice keeper though to be fair, agree with the rest.. maybe a left back too (Kelly perhaps)

    I'd be happy if we get him and I'd like to but I think he might end up at Dortmund.

    I get the feeling a lot of talented youngsters will be looking at them.

    I have heard though, we're in talks with him and he'd like it. His family are also quite keen on him staying in area - same person that said we'd be going back in for Botman before that hit airwaves.

    Be great if we got him. Very highly thought of, Toon fan and it would piss the mackems off massively.

    Don't see any negatives there.
